Volunteer Teaching English Program in Unchus Community, Huaraz-Peru
Peru Expeditions - community volunteer projects are based around rural village outside the Huaraz, we are working in a new Project for our village Unchus.

Located high among the spectacular Andes Mountains in the Cordillera Blanca our projects focus in our local community development.
Our new Project for 2017 - Volunteers in this program teach English to local Peruvian students in English schools. The schools are in need of English speaking volunteers on a regular basis.

In this program, you will be asked to teach 2 classes a day of 60 minutes each or will be just a teacher assistant to improve the pronunciation and English skills of the students. Learners are from 10 to 15 years old .  
Volunteers are provided with a fixed-curriculum. Teaching materials and the position is supported by a local a teacher coordinator. Our volunteers are asked by school authorities to develop their own projects to help students learn English. As a volunteer you will work for 50 minutes or 1 hrs and 30 minutes maximun in a day for 5 days in a week.
Volunteering in a Teaching Project in Peru is an incredibly rewarding and challenging experience for volunteers wherein they can gain valuable international teaching experience alongside assisting the Peruvian students in English studies.
